Country newcomer and American Idol Season Nine alum Casey James recently released his first single, “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night.” Yes, you read that right – James is asking, in his own clever way, for some lucky lady to agree to extend a romantic rendezvous through the entire night, singing “the way your body’s moving slowly to the music only leaves me wanting more.” And after hearing this song, it would be hard for any girl to say no to James’ request.
While grammar lovers may feel more comfortable with lyrics like, “please don’t call it a night,” or even “let’s not call it a night,” James’ creative twist of lyrics work. The song is catchy, soulful and smooth. The Texas native’s first single is a welcome blend of sensual vocals, similar to a mix of Josh Turner’s “Your Man” or Chris Young’s “Little Black Dress.” Country music lovers and rockers alike (James performed a duet with musical inspiration Brett Michaels on Idol) will welcome this song and hunger for more.
On his Twitter page (@caseyejames), 29 year old James describes himself as a simple family man that loves music, family, Jesus Christ, and friends … and dogs. He’ll soon have to add “fans” to that list, as his first single is certain to rekindle his relationship with his Idol fans and garner a slew of new followers. Earlier this year, James joined Sugarland on a leg of their popular “Incredible Machine Tour” and he is currently working on his first album.
